Christmas 2018 blog

Merry Christmas & Reflections on 2018

As I prepare for my 56th flight of the year to return home for a Christmas break I reflect on the reasons why 2018 has been one of my favourite years in this 12th year of running my business. For me the reason is the connection to people.

No doubt the  reason I am feeling even more connected to people this year is because we did more consulting, more in-practice and online customised… Continue reading

US ‘person-centred’ study tour part 3: New York

What an incredible experience New York was! Visits included 2 Urgent Care centres, 4 Pharmacies (which have to be seen to be believed), a Physical Therapy centre (Physio) and the famous Mount Sinai hospital.

In the 4 months I worked at the shelter I met dozens of women and children who were homeless. Their stories were… Continue reading

Health Care Homes – Blog 1 of 4 part series

What Practice Managers need to know:

  1. The way we provide healthcare in Australia is changing.

  3. Practices that evolve and adapt will be the ones who survive.

Some of the reasons major change is needed:

  1. Our patients are living longer with complex health needs.
  2. Medicare in its current form is unsustainable.
  3. Prevention, continuity of care and improved co-ordination is vital for health improvement.
  4. Patient expectations… Continue reading
